News: Fiammetta (hamstring) re-signed with the Bears on Monday, ESPN Chicago reports. Impact: It seems likely the Bears planned on bringing Fiammetta back all along after releasing him Saturday. The fullback was likely unavailable for the Week 2 tilt due to the hamstring injury, and with the status of receivers Alshon Jeffery and Brandon Marshall up in the air, the Bears needed to create more roster flexibility temporarily. Assuming Fiammetta is creeping closer to full health, he'll serve as Matt Forte's lead blocker.(RotoWire, )

News: Fiammetta (hamstring) has been released by the Bears, ESPN Chicago reports. Impact: Fiammetta was out of the game for Week 2 because of a hamstring injury, anyway, with the Bears needing roster space to add depth at other positions in advance of Sunday's contest.(RotoWire, )

News: Fiammetta (hamstring) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Bills, Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune reports. Impact: As a pure blocking back, Fiammetta doesn't directly provide much fantasy utility, but his unavailability could perhaps change the way in which coach Marc Trestman decides to call plays. With no fullback behind Fiammetta on the depth chart, look for Trestman to steer away from I-formations and find other methods to create running lanes for Matt Forte and pass protection for Jay Cutler.(RotoWire, )
